*** In a zero-g climate controlled environment (like on International Space Station) skirts, kilts, and the like aren't worn because, like shoes, those'll just get in the way. Most of the time there isn't a good reason to wear much more than what would be appropriate to wear around one's own home so, given the cost of sending cargo to low Earth orbit, such clothing isn't sent up there.

** The 1943 Goodrich pressure suit with its 'Michelin Man' look influenced fictional spacesuit designs such as ComicBook/{{Tintin}}'s ''Destination Moon'', and the (unrelated) [[Film/DestinationMoon movie of the same name]]. When a more effective pressure suit was developed and shown off for the famous Collier's "Men in Space" article, a picture of the Goodrich suit was shown instead for its more 'futuristic' look. Learning from this, the designers covered later pressure suits in silver material, ostensibly because it was 'heat resistant' but actually for RuleOfCool (see above).

* Guaranteeing that his ''{{Adept}}'' series will '''never''' be ruined by Hollywood, Creator/PiersAnthony averted this trope by having almost everyone on Planet Proton walk around naked.

** The Mercury astronauts wore an olive drab pilot's pressure suit, which was spray-painted silver not for any practical reason, but because it [[RealityIsUnrealistic reflected the popular idea]] of what a 'space-man' would wear. However this was abandoned when astronauts started doing spacewalks, [[AwesomeButImpractical as the reflected glare of unfiltered sunlight off a silver suit was too bright]].

* Asimov's ''TheBicentennialMan'', each new time period that protagonist lives through is introduced with a description of the current fashion. Most of the new clothing styles looks pretty silly to modern eyes (transparent clothing for women and tube top for men, really?).
* Jumpsuits seem to be the default garment of choice for humans in the ''HumanxCommonwealth'' series.

* Deconstructed in the KimNewman short story ''Literature/TomorrowTown''. The protagonists are sent to investigate a testbed "community-of-the-future" and change into the unisex one-size-fits-all plastic suits, finding them difficult to adjust, prone to overheating even in a climate-controlled environment, difficult to remove for toilet purposes and {{stripperiffic}} because their designer was a sexist lecher.
